Dietary Exposure Evaluation Model Discussion Forum

2011 November 7

EPA has released a beta version of the Dietary Exposure Evaluation Model-Food Commodity Intake Database (DEEM-FCID) to the public. We’d like to hear what you think of this software, so please participate in the discussion. We would appreciate any feedback you can give us on the

  • installation process,
  • operating system and
  • software compatibility issues.

In addition, we are interested in comments regarding

  • the data,
  • ease of running the program and
  • the input of data.

These discussions will help us refine the usability of the software for later final release to the public which is expected in spring 2012.

    Please review and evaluate the March 2012 evaluation version of DEEM/Calendex WWEIA FCID software. EPA would would appreciate any feed back on this more recent version which includes consumption data from WWEIA 2003-2008 as well as several modifications from comments made by users on the December 2011 version of DEEM WWEIA FCID 2003-2006. EPA intends on providing a final version of the exposure software to the public in early May, 2012.
